Mealtime memoirs is a project that seeks and shares the narratives behind what we eat through a three-part interactive “dining” experience. Through unexpected approaches and mediums, it emphasizes how food, identity, and culture are closely intertwined.

Audience members first read Mealtime memoirs on the printed plates and napkins. They can then reflect on their own food experiences through a stamping activity. Finally, there is a collaborative activity on the wall where participants share their Mealtime memoirs. The project is displayed through a comfortable table setting that welcomes audience members. Mealtime memoirs strives to celebrate food as a central player that holds society, culture, and identity together.
